Brown, Hendricks; Card, David; Dickersin, Kay; Greenhouse, Joel; Kling, Jeffrey; Littell, Julia
National Board for Education Sciences
Based on investigation and analysis of the What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) review process and reports, this panel concluded that: (1) WWC procedures and processes for identifying and extracting information from intervention studies are generally well documented and follow reasonable standards and practices for systematic reviews; and (2) WWC Intervention and Topic Area Reports provide succinct and meaningful summaries of the evidence on the effectiveness of specific education interventions. Support for these conclusions is detailed in the remainder of the report, recommendations for the continued enhancement and improvement of WWC procedures include a comprehensive review of the full range of WWC activities and procedures, with a timeframe to allow a complete consideration of a number of issues not fully evaluated in this report. Two appendixes are included: (1) Panel Charge; and (2) References. (Contains 5 footnotes.)
